Bentley has been sold!
Hi all !
I've got a move coming up and need to raise some money so I figured it was time to pare down the collection a bit. All prices are based off of the lowest current price that I could find...
Hi all -
I am looking for a good deal on GIT. I don't care if it's the 2.5oz or 4oz bottle. I am located in Texas. If anyone is interested in a possible trade, I have:
- Penhaligon's LP No.9...
I laugh every time I see that avatar and since you post about 2k times per day, I'm laughing a lot. :laugh:
Any chance you'll get a second date with her? Hope she liked the Bleu...
All very great recommendations everyone, thank you. Please keep them coming though. I normally just buy big bottles of fragrance and now am realizing that my money might be better spent on sampling...
Hi all -
I am ordering samples for the first time and need some help. I'll probably be ordering from Decant Shop. I'm hoping to get some recommendations for scents that must be tried, if only...
Hi all -
Not sure if swapping samples here is a faux pas, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I've got a 4ml sample of Tom Ford Italian Cypress that I'll never use... but I really love both Tuscan...
Yea, that's what I have to do right now but it just irks me. I'm really hoping to find a solution here...!
Yea, I know it's a bit confusing. The cap (or button) just won't stay pressed on. There is a post/stem that it slides into it which may be damaged, I'm not sure.
I may take her up on the new...
So far it's not looking good. Response from Creed:
Thank you for writing to us. The only replacement piece that we have available is the actual atomizer button. Other than that, we do not have...
That's pretty amazing. I'll give that a shot, thank you!
Hi all -
I'm not sure where to post this and have been putting it off for a while but thought I would solicit the advice of the forum to see if there's anything I can do.
I have a 4.0oz...
I just scored a full 3.4 oz bottle of Tiffany for Men off of Craigslist for $45, which strikes me as a pretty great deal. The woman who sold it to me said her husband bought it and she thinks it...
Just smelled this today (on paper only) and thought it was ok. I own the Eau Des Baux and enjoy L'Occitane products in general, but this one didn't compel me to make a purchase. Maybe others will...
I second the 5ml travel atomizers at Nordstrom.
What does the (268) in your comment mean?
This happens to be my favorite post in the thread.
1 down. 1 left. Still considering all offers.
Bump. I have multiple bottles and still entertaining offers.
My brand new (with box) 1.7oz Penhaligon's LP No. 9 for any of the ones you are swapping. I enjoy them all. Would prefer the Creed, however.
Damn it. Got me.
I wouldn't bother asking for a refund if they were understanding and willing to send out replacement samples. If the replacement samples come damaged, then yes, ask for your money back, but it sounds...
And he smells absolutely amazing.
I am surprised at the responses in this thread. I thought Allure Homme would be the clear winner. I remember when this forum was all about bashing Bleu.
Will you link us to your post in the "show us your collection" thread? I am sure there is one but I haven't seen it.
I like how you recommend 2 fragrances that don't even belong to his collection. I do agree with you, however. Just lol.
Heh Heh Heh.
All the Aventus jokes lately are droll.
^ In my opinion, yes. It is straight up lemon all the way but it does have a vibe going on that dates it a bit.
If by alive you mean befuddled, then yes.
Would this make a good summer scent?
With my eyeballs
No. We collectively think you should stick to mainstream scents forever. Permission into nichce fragrances is hereby denied.
Natural selection is a funny thing
The John Varvatos original is what got me into fragrances.
I love the brevity of your responses.
Been wanting to get my hands on this but not willing to spring for the cost it commands on eBay.
Like the title says, I have a new-in-box 1.7oz LP No. 9 to swap. Will consider all reasonable offers. Ships from Texas.
Heh heh heh. I LOL'd.
Which one do use?
You're in the right place! Look around this forum. Read the stickies. There is a DIY suppliers list for recommendations on where to purchase your ingredients.
Thanks guys. My first creation has 11 notes, all EOs. Then adding Everclear.
How many notes and ingredients (making a distinction between these 2) do your fragrances generally contain?
What is considered to be the upper limit of notes that one should attempt to...
I have chronic sinusitis which causes me to be completely blocked on one side or the other every day. There hasn't been a day, at least in the last 10 years or so, in which I was able to breathe...
Thanks Racuda for the helpful reply!
Thank you for the responses. I should have stated that I am merely a hobbyist who is exploring this to create scents for myself. I do not intend to sell my creations, at least not...
As a beginner to perfumery, I have a question. If one purchases high quality essentials oils and takes every measure to ensure quality control (eg: limiting contamination, proper storage and...
Anybody else have experience with them?
I am thinking of ordering.
Nice experiment, thanks for sharing.
I am the same way. I do a lot of buying but conversely I do a lot of selling to finance my next acquisition. I am constantly buying and selling to maintain a group of my highest rated fragrances.
This looks like a full time job. Someone should be paying you man!
You got a Bond 9 for $50 at Marshalls? That is tough to believe. I didn't even know those appeared there.
I've got a bottle I save for special occasions as it doesn't seem suited for every day use, but yes, count me in as a DHI fan!
This just turned into your new, pro bono, fulltime job!
I know this is an old thread but in case there is anyone else with the same question, these can be had at your local Container Store for cheap:
Dude, the most upsetting thing about this post is your inability to focus the camera :rolleyesold:
Why not just order it directly from Fragrancenet if they are the one who fulfills it on Amazon?
I just bought Acqua Di Parma Colonia Intensa for daytime summer wear and am really enjoying it so far. However, as I was going through my cologne assortment, I found Brooks Brothers New York...
If it makes the OP feel any better after that snarky comment made by another poster, most people can't tell the difference between a $50 bottle of Cool Water vs. a $250 bottle of GIT.
I think Aventus and I are beginning to understand one another. In the beginning, it seems my nose was seeking those fruity top notes throughout the day and if they couldn't be detected I concluded...
Interesting post, thanks for sharing. I've decided to stop being so conservative. I am going to bathe in this stuff before I leave because I want my money's worth in compliments damn it! I kid. I'm...
Yep. I have tried numerous experiments. It seems for me, unfortunately, less is not more. In the beginning, I will admit the top notes are very prominent but this fades within 30 minutes or less...
Went with 1 spray to the back of the neck and 1 to the chest. Didn't smell it at all during the day and received no compliments. I'm beginning to wonder about this one...
My Aventus arrived last week from FragranceNet (batch # A42B11Y02) and I too have share in the popular olfactory fatigue lament. Aventus is a very easy fragrance to over-apply evidently. I have been...
I've heard mention of Creed in that show before too.
Prada Infusion d'homme for sure
Over Memorial Day weekend a Brooks Brothers factory store near me was having a 40% off sale. Everything in the store. I quickly procured a bottle of New York Gentlemen and the Brooks Brothers Classic...
I've ordered from them several times, always been pleased.
He's right. This argument makes the most sense and I've heard it made more than once.
I think you can rest assured you got a legit and probably fairly current product. It's not as though this was...
I can smell it on me the next day. It lasts and lasts.... and lasts
I'll echo the above sentiments:
avoid them both lest you smell like every other 20 year old kid on campus
Just picked one up. GAP has a $10 off coupon in-store so I snagged this for like $20 (100ml bottle).
I second the John Varvatos and Tom Ford suggestions made earlier in this thread.
Crabtree & Evelyn - Nomad
i'll have to try this comparison myself to see what kind of results it yields.
Yea, it does remind me of NRG a bit. I think you're right, I haven't found hardly any discussion on the forums about it.
I just received this in a swap. While I like the smell, I'm having a hard time characterizing it. Some reviewers here are especially skilled...
Weird.. I searched and didn't see it. Sorry all! :)
Yea, I was coming to post this very thread. Definitely needs a spot in the directory.
I sampled it today and like it.
That Publix cayenne pepper sauce has amazing longevity. Can we get that added to the directory please?
I wondered this too. I didn't own the original so i'm not sure. Anyone?
Hmm.. I don't own one of these scents yet but after reading this thread it seems I have some more shopping to do. :X
I too would be interested to know.
Fragrancenet.com is an online discount retailer.
Sephora.com is an actual brick and mortar beauty retailer with thousands of locations.
The differences? You save more at Fragrancenet but when...
I wish I was better at retaining information. Half of the stuff I read I forget the following day :P
Currently all (7) of their fine fragrances are absent from the directory.
Baldessarini Cologne by Hugo Boss, Launched by the design house of hugo boss, this scent elegantly...
Wow. I can't think of a single thing in that post that constitutes being reported.
D&G Light Blue
Versace Pour Homme
You're damn right I can (and will). :)
DustB has it right! The difference in price = the cost of the pamphlet. Worth it or not? I think not..
Wow, the eBayer 'Allshewants' has an insane positive feedback score. She looks pretty legit to me.
^ Interesting bit of information. Thank you!
The ratio of positive to negative experiences is pretty skewed. I think it's safe to conclude that more customers are dissatisfied. Based on the mixed bag we've seen here, I think I'd consider...
Does the TF private blend lineup offer better longevity than Grey Vetiver?
I expected for this to produce a polarized response. I'm not saying fragrances created for teens can't be enjoyed by older people or vice-versa. I think that's great if they are! There are no hard...
Excellent bottle design. I'll have to sample this
